Cosy and comfortable with a good location
Tucked down Soi Sunpanad, off Phaholyothin Road, but hard to miss with a vivid green paint job, is the cute and homely Baan Baramee. With a convivial atmosphere and friendly staff plus a cosy downstairs seating area, it’s a welcoming little spot.
Behind the small cafe, where complimentary breakfast is served, and the information and reception desk is a two-storey block with a selection of comfy, good value rooms. There are several room styles, but to keep things simple only two different prices, so have a nose around, see what is available and which best fits your budget and requirements. All are pleasantly decorated with pale yellow paintwork and clean with large TV, air-con, WiFi, fridge and modern en-suite bathrooms equipped with hot showers.
Ground floor rooms are naturally less bright with no view but larger in size while smaller first-floor ones have seating outside on a communal terrace. They have double and single rooms, where a large bed fills most of the room, though the bright, airy twin bed options come with sliding French doors. All are good value for what you get plus there’s only a 100 baht supplement for high season.
There are several more decent-looking guesthouses down this well-situated soi so if you turn up without a booking and there’s no room at the inn you’ll have plenty of alternatives near by. Baramee with bright, clean rooms and friendly welcome, was the pick of the bunch for us though.
